Oooh, I'd like *that* kind of warning! It'd be appliable to 90 percent of 
fantasy fiction!

Seriously, though. "Fanfiction" doesn't say the first thing about whether or 
not the story is original. The Last Temptation of Christ is, strictly 
speaking, fanfiction. Pretty Woman isn't. If I'd want something original, I 
would still choose the former story.
